So here's an update to keep you all in the loop:

- We're going to need 4 sign designs for FUDcon:
-- 1 large quote sign, 44x56 inches (quotes below)
-- 3 conference room signs, 22x28 inches:
--- FUDCon Boston 2008 logo + Text: "Hackfest"
--- FUDCon Boston 2008 logo + Text: "Presentations / Hackfest"
--- FUDCon Boston 2008 logo + Text: "Lounge"

The file/format requirements are as follows:
- Full quarter inch bleed
- CMYK color (need scribus!)
- EPS (need scribus!)

My workflow is probably going to be to do NO ALPHA GRADIENT artwork in 
Inkscape (Scribus doesn't like alpha gradients :-p), and keep the text 
and fills/gradients for the BG in Scribus. Because our deadline is tight 
on this I'm starting work NOW; I'll be in #fedora-art and likely will be 
posting works in progress there so if you're interested in helping out 
you're welcome to join in. :)
